    Xanth: "Take Jesus for example, if you follow the bible it was emaculate conception. The book of Mormon (or one of their other sources, I can't remember) corrects us in the error of our ways and tells us that it was in fact, God who impregnated mary himself"

    Catholicism: The Immaculate Conception speaks to how Mary was conceived in the womb of Mary's mother. It has nothing to do with how Jesus was conceived. Secondly, the nativity stories in the gospels unambiguously say that God impregnated Mary so as to form the baby Jesus. It's crystal clear in the text, and it's a massively important piece of doctrine repeated so often that no one could possibly mess it up except by willfully blindness.

    If you're going to diss a religion, be accurate. When you make up something and then knock it down, it's you who looks stupid, not the guy (or girl, here) you're trying to make fun of. You gotta be accurate when you criticize.

    Thread locked because (a) tendency to cross the line into personal attacks now, or at least skirting it real close; and (b) the thread has pretty much outlived its usefulness.
